Services can’t be started or stopped after upgrading
After upgrading Edward, if you experience problems stopping or starting services, this may be a result of corrupted state files.
Steps to reset state:
- Restart your computer
- Ensure there are no services running under Edward
- Delete the Edward home directory:
This will completely reset Edward to a clean state.
Orphaned services running after upgrade or crash
After an upgrade or if Edward exits unexpectedly while starting/stopping services, you may find that you have orphaned services running in the background.
You can terminate all Edward related processes using pkill:
$ pkill -f edward
This will find and kill all services with ‘edward’ in their command.
